Horns used – Four different natural horns were used. Mr. Burdick began the project on a small bore horn made by Jose. Monke This horn can be heard especially on tract 11, a lot of the tracks using this horn were rerecorded due to intonation problems. The bulk of the recording was done on a Austro-Bohemian horn made in the 1840’s by an unknown maker with additional crooks made by Lowell Greer. Track 13 2nd voice is done on a squeaky (lacquered) & of unknown maker “D” horn made in the 1790’s. Track 5 2nd voice is performed using a horn with a Geyer bell and Seraphinoff crooks of Burdick’s.
